Calling the New York City nanny who stabbed a 2-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl to death “pure evil,” a judge sentenced Yoselyn Ortega on Monday to life in state prison, without the possibility of parole.

The children’s mother Marina Krim was taking their sibling Nessie, 3, to a swimming lesson when the murders happened in the family’s Upper West Side apartment. She came home to find Ortega and her two bloody children in the
